In August, we reported that Spain and the Catholic Church had brokered a deal with the Cuban government to secure the release of dozens of Cuban political prisoners. The Cubans were to be resettled in Spain. The only problem: They wanted to come to the U.S., not Spain. Now, it seems they will get their wish.
The AP reports that the Cuban dissidents will be coming to the United States where they will receive asylum:
The State Department is working to bring to the USA most of the 39 Cuban political prisoners exiled to Spain this summer... More than 100 family members would join them. [The] first case has been processed and nearly all are likely to accept the offer. [The] plan gets around a Catch-22 whereby Cubans who left the island were no longer considered in harm's way, and thus not eligible for traditional asylum requests in the U.S.
Apparently, the Cubans preferred the United States because they had family and community ties here. While I understand the desire to resettle in a country where you have connections, this is a deal that would likely not be available to asylum seekers from other countries. Normally, once a person has asylum in one country, he is not eligible to receive asylum in the U.S. This case reminds us that politics (here, our dislike of the Cuban government) can play a role in the asylum system.
I have a case similar to this, where the United Nations resettled my client as a refugee in a country where the client had no community ties or friends, no knowledge of the language or culture, and no prospects for a job. The client came to the U.S. and is now seeking asylum here. We'll see if the Immigration Court is as generous to my client as the State Department has been to these Cuban exiles.
Oh the hypocrisy. Maybe this is why Dobbs started to sound a little more moderate on immigration just before he left CNN under mysterious circumstances.
Does anyone think Sheriff Arpaio is likely to have something in his background as well?
According to DHS, nearly 400,000 individuals were deported, half of them those charged with crimes. If you listen to the antis, they'll have you believing that the federal government is doing nothing to enforce immigration laws. But the statistics tell the story. Every time an anti in Congress says they're for reforming immigration laws but first want to make sure our existing laws are being enforced, this data should be recited.
A newer poll than the Pew one I mentioned yesterday shows a much higher percentage of Latino voters intend to participate in the election next month. If that's the case, several key races in states like California, Nevada and Colorado could be affected.

1. Comment: Texas Swing State -An early read of the Census numbershttp://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/48000.htmlshows Texas, already the second-largest electoral prize afterCalifornia, gaining four more House seats. Texas has been a solid"Red" state and the cornerstone of all Republican victories afterReagan. The math for the Electoral College dictates that aRepublican can only win the White House by winning Texas, sinceCalifornia and New York are solid "Blue" states, and beyond thereach of even a strong Republican candidate. Hispanics nowaccount for around 37% of the population of Texas, and more thanhalf the babies born in Texas are Hispanic. It is foolish forsome in the Republican Party to ignore this crucial demographictrend. This is because alienating Hispanic voters would makeTexas a "Purple" swing state, and thereby risk making Republicanaspirations to the Whitehouse to be put on hold for theforeseeable future. Those in the Republican Party who want theirparty to succeed to the Presidency in the 2010s should pursue apro-immigration agenda, and ensure that the Hispanic vote issplit between the Parties.
